Many of us lead a hectic lifestyle that consists of a fast-paced work attitude and back-to-back business meetings. Moreover, many business professionals often have to go on short business trips.

If you are one of these then you know just how essential packing right is considering it’s easy to over-pack or under-pack, especially if it’s a last-minute kind of situation. Fret not, though: we’re here to help! Check out our four easy and clever packing tips for your next business trip below.

 Choose the right luggage

For business professionals, carry-on luggage with wheels is the ideal luggage to take on a business trip. Why? Because it saves time since you don’t have to check-in your luggage and queue forever. It also reduces the risk of losing your luggage! Tip: Keep your toiletry pouch at the top of your carry-on luggage.

 Roll your clothes

There is nothing more stressing than your business trip’s outfits getting wrinkly! The easy tip to keep your clothes wrinkle-free is to know what to do. Firstly, for softer fabrics and denim, which are less likely to wrinkle, roll them. For example, fold your jeans lengthwise to the right then roll from cuff up. Elsewhere, for stiffer fabrics like dressy pants, blazers and skirts, you need to fold them. The rolling method doesn’t just make your clothes wrinkle-free, but also reduces space in the bag, which allows you to fit in more clothes.

 Stick to basic colours

Whether it’s for overnight, a few days or a week-long business trip, always choose basic colours like black, blue and brown, and stick with them. This will make it easier for you to pick your outfits and eliminate the need to pack multiple pairs of shoes and belts in different colours.

 In-Flight essentials


Since you will be spending most of your time on the plane, it might be a good idea to pack in-flight essentials in a separate pouch that is easy to grab. The included items are headphones, earplugs, phone charger, wallets, and so on.
